Spalding’s Castle Swimming Pool is open as normal after a technical fault led to its closure over the weekend.

A plant room fault was discovered on Friday and then repaired, but swimmers found the pool temperature colder than normal when using it on Saturday.

The main pool was closed on Friday due to a technical issue in the plant room which overdosed the main pool

The main pool was closed again on Sunday after “temperatures dropped below acceptable parameters”, according to a Castle spokesman.

However, the issue has now been resolved and all pools are open as normal.

The spokesman said: “The main pool was closed on Friday due to a technical issue in the plant room which overdosed the main pool.

“The pool remained closed on Friday but both the dive pit and the small pool were fully operational.

“Due to the need to flush the main pool with cold water following this fault, the pool was cooler than normal on Saturday but was re-opened anyway.

“However, it had to close again on Sunday as temperatures dropped below acceptable parameters.

“Once again, both the dive pit and small pool were at normal temperatures and fully operational.”
